Democrats, Republicans lead in their own strongholds

"I know that the Senate is planning to bring an immigration bill to the floor in coming weeks and I'm asking that the framework we submitted - with great flexibility", Trump said. Trump proclaimed that "we are now an exporter of energy to the world" (we were an exporter for years and are still not a net exporter), that "unemployment claims have hit a 45-year low" (Trump, before taking office, had said the unemployment figures he now cites were phony), and that "the stock market has smashed one record after another" (he alleged before taking office that the record-setting market was a "bubble" and "artificial").
The four-page document released Friday contends that the Federal Bureau of Investigation, when it applied for a surveillance warrant on a onetime Trump campaign associate, relied excessively on an ex-British spy whose opposition research was funded by Democrats. But Gowdy did say the release of the memo has no connection to numerous investigative threads in the Russian Federation probe.
Christopher Steele, the former spy who compiled the allegations, acknowledged having strong anti-Trump sentiments. Nadler, the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, accuses the Nunes memo of being "deliberately misleading and deeply wrong on the law".
Asked whether that would change on March 5, USCIS said they could not speculate on any "potential outcomes", but that the agency "will comply with the federal court order and will accept requests to renew a grant of deferred action under DACA".
Trump tweeted Saturday that the memo "vindicated" his insistence that there was "no collusion and there was no obstruction". Trump has insisted there was no collusion by his campaign and has called the Mueller probe a "witch hunt" and a "hoax". He called the investigation "an American disgrace". No action has resulted.
Democrats are pushing for the fate of the Dreamers to be tackled as a priority, and are resisting Republican efforts to tie it into a broader bargain on immigration.
"Having made a decision to cherry-pick, the Nunes team picked a bunch of the wrong cherries for its own narrative", Matthew Waxman, a Columbia University law professor and former Bush administration official, wrote in an email.
New breakdowns from the poll show that Democrats hold a 37-point advantage among voters in congressional districts classified as "solid" for Democrats by the Cook Political report, with 64 percent supporting Democrats and 27 percent backing Republicans.
Steele's research, according to the memo, "formed an essential part" of the warrant application. Steele didn't begin work on the project until after Democratic groups took over the funding.
Eagles offer tickets to fan who feared missing Super Bowl
The faster that this team wins what would be their sixth Super Bowl , the faster Jets fans can hope that this dynasty evaporates. "Brady, Gronk and Edelman and a lot of stuff from Super Bowl LI highlights", said Tasha Davies of New England Picture.
"Each family member of the principal immigrant who comes to the United States as a permanent resident can, in turn, sponsor relatives beyond his or her own nuclear family", it said.
Administration officials have said that Trump discussed trying to fire Mueller back in June, but attorneys talked him out of it.
He provoked Democratic groans by announcing that he is naming judges who "interpret the Constitution as written", ignited another provocation by saying he "ended the war on attractive clean coal", and produced loud protest from the opposition party when he said immigrants pouring through "open borders" have "caused the loss of many innocent lives".
Trey Gowdy, the Republican chairman of the powerful House Oversight Committee, said the four-page memo has no impact on the Russian Federation probe.
In other words, will Twitter Trump step on teleprompter Trump?
"The goal here is to undermine the FBI, discredit the FBI, discredit the Mueller investigation, do the president's bidding", he said on ABC's "This Week".
The Supreme Court will meet in private on February 16 and on the agenda is the administration's bid to have the San Francisco judge's order reviewed before the end of the term in June.
House Speaker Paul Ryan said the Nunes memo needed to be released because rights may have been violated. After that was rejected, they are less likely to accept further concessions. Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray had personally lobbied against the memo's disclosure, arguing it could set a risky precedent.
